I'm REALLY interested to see what you guys say about this! Saw it twice in DC. Probably won't see it again for a while because of all the other new shows.

What does the curtain look like? Will Adele come out the stage door and sign?

From anyone who saw this in DC: how is the view from, say, a rear-mezz seat? I'm hoping to catch this sometime this week but the only seats in my price range are really up there. I know the Richard Rodgers is probably different than where it played in DC, but from the most general of standpoints… hows the experience from a seat further away? Looking at those Foursquare photos, I didn't realize how much the design elements resembled that of N2N, or at least it seems that way from what I can see in some of those pictures… and I remember that show being better from the mezzanine. And as for the Rodgers, in general: does anyone know how the rear-mezz is there? I've never been.

Hm, I can only say from how the National theatre was set up but I definitely felt like the rear mezz seats didn't have the greatest view. When I saw it in DC, I scrambled to empty seats in the front/side mezz right before the show started because I didn't feel like I could see from the back. But that being said, I only moved up a handful of rows and felt like I saw everything perfectly, so hopefully you'd be fine!! I'd be curious to hear how the Rodgers is though...

Can't WAIT to hear about the changes they've made. When I saw it (towards the end of the DC run) there was plenty of room for improvement but I still adored it. So refreshing to have an original show!

Thanks, Sophiia. If I end up with those tickets I'll be sure to report back. I didn't realize the National Theatre in DC had a balcony, as well! So I'm sure if people have been up there for this the rear-mezz at the Rodgers can't seem that bad… or can it?

The view from the rear mezzanine is fine in that theater. I saw IN THE HEIGHTS back there and could see and hear everything clearly, but it is kinda far away if memory serves. And, having seen the show in DC, I think it benefits from sitting closer, but you should be fine in the rear mezz! I'll be there this week.

I am sitting in the last row of the mezzanine. Considering I am fine with the balcony view at the Palace, I am not too concerned. I have never been to the Richard Rogers, so I am excited to see it!

Seems weird that a show with a 2-story set would want the Rogers where the back orchestra won't be able to see it all, right?

I sat in the middle of the orchestra the first time I saw it and saw everything perfectly the first time.
And then we saw in the right mezzanine (closer to the aisles) and saw everything perfectly (I think you can see a lot more from the mezzanine, like the subway map of lights on the floor. You can see it reflected in the mirror when you are in the orchestra as well, but it was cool seeing it from both perspectives). The only problem I had when sitting in the mezzanine was that the mirror and if I remember correctly the stairs cut off some peoples head and we could only see their bodies.

in, In the Heights people stand on terraces on the building which is kind of high up and you can see fine from the back orchestra!

The mess of the Richard Rogers is the worst seats I've ever had. I saw "Tarzan" there and I walk hunchbacked ever since. See it from the orchestra.

I'm going Wednesday.

Mercades, if you think the mezz at the Rodgers is bad, then you've been fortunate to avoid most of the other mezzanines in other Broadway houses. The Rodgers has one of the better ones.

Just got 2 tickets for opening night. There are a fair number of seats still available for about $75.00, rear mezzanine.

Assuming they are not heavily papered or heavily discounted the ticket sales aren't terrible. If this has good reviews and word of mouth it could be a hit!

I'd prefer a rush to a lottery, although I realize it's great that they're offering $25 tickets at all. Now I'm thinking I should buy tickets in advance, though.

I was thinking about making up a name plate to slide into the lobby cast list board and seeing how long it took people to find it. I am sure I am not the only one thinking this too. It would be great on April Fools day.
